“Sequía” is the first co-production between RTVE and the Portuguese RTP in collaboration with Atlantia Media and Coral Europa, starring Elena Rivera, Rodolfo Sancho, Miriam Gallego and Miguel Ángel Muñoz.
The Academy of Television and Audiovisual Arts and Sciences has announced this Tuesday the professionals and programs that are finalists for the Iris Awards 2022 from among more than 450 nominations submitted by broadcasters, production companies and Academy members for programs, series and other formats broadcast between June 22, 2021 and June 27, 2022.
In the fiction category, the great favorite is Sequía with five nominations. It is up for Best Series, Best Actress (Elena Rivera), Best Actor (Miguel Ángel Muñoz), Best Direction (Joaquín Llamas and Oriol Ferrer) and Best Production (Joaquín Llamas and Jorge Sánchez Gallo) .
The series, shot over several months in locations such as Cáceres, Madrid, Lisbon and Cascais, arose from the need to include in fiction a cyclical problem that has a brutal impact on the Iberian Peninsula, the lack of rain and water management, using it as the starting point and trigger for the story. An unsolved crime, family plots and a landscape punished by the lack of rain are the main ingredients of Sequía.
